Suzuki Motor Corporation has introduced the all-new SX4 Crossover at the 83rd Geneva International Motor Show. This production model is based on the S-Cross, which was unveiled at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. Suzuki’s designers and engineers started to develop the new model as the existing SX4’s successor.
But the company realized that they had to “think bigger” if they wanted to meet customers’ expectations when it comes to crossovers in Europe and other areas throughout the world. As the new model enters the C segment because of its bigger size, it gets the “SX4” emblem to indicate that Suzuki (the letter “S”) is a pioneer of both crossover and four-wheel drive (the “X” and “4” respectively).
Suzuki made the new SX4 Crossover by combining its compact car expertise with technologies developed for sport utility vehicles. The new SX4 Crossover features distinctive crossover styling, class-leading room for passengers and luggage, next generation 4WD performance, and one of the cars in the segment with the lowest CO2 emissions.
As a result, it has greater appeal due to its styling, utility, performance and fuel economy. This model can provide enjoyment in driving and versatility in usage. Suzuki will produce the new SX4 Crossover from its Magyar Suzuki plant in Hungary.
This car will start selling this autumn. Magyar Suzuki has a vital role as Suzuki’s production centre in Europe. Suzuki kicks off the expansion program by launching the new SX4 Crossover. Magyar Suzuki aims to expand its exports to additional countries. It also seeks to raise its production volume and to become known as a major manufacturing base for Suzuki’s worldwide strategy.
Since the introduction of the Jimny (formerly the LJ series) in 1970, Suzuki has developed its range of off-road automobiles. Models such as the Vitara and Grand Vitara are included in this line-up. Through the development, Suzuki earned a status as the forerunner of compact Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs). As of now, the company has gained unrivaled expertise in developing compact passenger vehicles. Refining its performance technologies in the area of motor sports has been the company’s work since the last part of the 1980’s. In 2006, the company combined its advanced technologies in the SX4 sport crossover. This vehicle provides great performance on both rough and snowy roads. It also offers comfortable city driving. The creation of the crossover class in Europe has driven the class’ growth.
Smart Crossover for more freedom in daily life
Heralded by the S-Cross, the latest model will mark Suzuki's full-blown entry in the market for the crossover C-segment.
The automobile’s functions and features will be aimed at providing comfort. It will also have one of the biggest luggage areas in the c-segment crossover, making it highly practical.
Suzuki ensures the latest crossover has the same on-road control and performance quality of the Kizashi, Swift series and the SX4. Suzuki is embracing systems which embody advancement in the performance of the four-wheel-drive that is parcel and part of its heritage.
The latest model will take drivability to new heights by providing a light, sporty, fuel-efficient driving. In addition, the car is more capable to driving on snow. Further, it will allow its users to maximize their enjoyment of the daily lifestyle such as carrying children, communicating and driving long trips. The vehicle will express Suzuki’s vision of a smart crossover that is flexible for day-to-day activities.
